question. don't necessarily have the answer to that. i do know we can eliminate the deficit simply slowing down government growth. we don't need to cut government. we simply need to slow it down. if we do that we'll eliminate the annual deficit. >> you hear the argument that is like throwing granny off a cliff. >> i don't think it is. i disagree with it. neil: do you feel attempted to go into politics? >> no. if i ever do i hope somebody talks me out of it. neil: some of the best ideas i ever heard, john are from guys like you. the whole process soils you, oh, my god, i can't deal with it, it is so stupid? >> it is difficult because i found in my own experience when you're very authentic and tell the truth and honest often times get attacked. you get smeared, you, very difficult. takes a lot of courage, i think to go into the political realm these days. neil: will be interesting. put it that way. john mackey. whole foods market cofounder, co-ceo. conscience capitalism. read it. thought to paper and thought that sticks in your head. all right. inauguration on monday. we are there. i'm there
s. >> while i'm willing to find middle ground to reduce our deficits, america cannot afford another debate. not paying its bills is irresponsible. it's absurd. republicans in congress have two choices here. they can act responsibly and pay america's bills or they can act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect or ransom in exchange for not crashing the america economy. the financial well-being of the american people is not leverage to be used. the full faith and credit of the united states of america is not a bargaining chip. >> you know, it looks like republicans are up against another wall. but they're not going to be able to get -- they're not going to be able to get, quite frankly, some things they really want, if they're serious, are important. spending issues. but this is -- he's got them again. >> here's the problem with the republican party being owned by extremists on issues not related to the debt. let me tell you something, the president of the united states, it's laughable that he would talk about republicans not being res
agenda, talking about jobs, dealing with the deficit, getting out of afghanistan. imgrapgs. not small goals. what are his chances of getting thinged accomplished? >> i think there's a path on immigration and that would probably be done soonler rather than later. i remember rahm emanuel saying never let a crisis go to waist waste. the republicans have a crisis in terms of attracting hispanic voters. so they need to deal with immigration reform. is prospects for that look very good. you look at the previous president, what tripped them up, you didn't mention lyndon johnson, but his presidency got devoured by the war in vietnam. he had a terrific legislative record. this president is very careful about getting this country involved in another international crisis, war. he's overly cautious and is getting us out of afghanistan, whether that's a good or bad idea. it's coming to an end. he's very much aware of history. i think we can check the box on the personal life. i have confidence he's not going to get in trouble in his personal life. i think the legislative confrontations are the tou
the hard choices to reduce the cost of health care and the size of our deficit. but we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future. (cheers and applause) >> pelley: we people, the first three words of the pre-amble of the constitution, the president repeated it again and again throughout the speech, a speech about national unity and unity of person. norah o'donnell and john dickerson are down there on the national mall. they've been watching these events unfold all day. john, the president has quite a task ahead of im. how does he proceed politically? >> well, he proceeds the next big moment is the state of the union and that's where he will get even more detailed. as bob mentioned, this did have a state of the union like feel to it as he ticked off those agenda items. but he'll get more specific about agenda items, he'll put pressure on congress and the big thing, though, is while we think about his agenda for the future, he's still dealing with the business of the past an
deficit. his job legislation proposals are not well received the republicans. the administration has not proposed any innovative resolution for the severe downturn in housing and some believe he should have supported and promoted simpson/bowles deficit reduction proposal. he's not been able to significantly expand economic opportunity. how has obama used the tools of leadership? he attempts to communicate his vision of proposal, but he said. so often on television that overexposure was occurring. he's a capable public speaker, beseeches frequently like this. he showed during his first campaign. he seems to lack a dramatic communication skills of fdr, reagan or clinton. obama frequently comes across as a teacher and not a motivator. he fails then to frequently excite and motivate the broad public he must reach, although he isn't doing that in the current campaign. there's a recent article in the sunday edition of "the new york times," entitled obama plays to win in politics and everything else. the author paints a picture of obama that gives greater insight into hand and how he might
and dignity. we must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of health care and the size of our deficit area but we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future. [cheers] [applause] we remember the lessons of our past. twilight years were spent in poverty and parents of a child with a disability have nowhere to turn. we do not believe that in this country that freedom is reserved for the lucky or happiness for the few. we recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our lives, any one of us, at any time, they may face a job loss or sudden illness or a home swept away in a terrible storm. the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid and social security, these things strengthen us. [cheers] [applause] they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. [cheers] [applause] we, the people, still believe that our obligations as americans are not just to ourselves, but to all prosperity we will respond to the
to get the deficit down. we're going to do a budget this year and it will have revenues in it and our republican colleagues better get used to that fact. martha: promise, promises right? they will do a budget this year. we haven't seen one in how long? stuart varney the anchor of "varney & company". how many years has it been now? >> i believe it is 3 1/2 years. we go through the tax debate. we thought we got higher taxes on the rich and it was over, not so. senator schumer and fellow democrats are proposing yet higher taxes on the rich, more taxes on oil and gas companies and taxes on profits that american corporations makeover seas. so that is three big areas where taxes are going to go up. all of this we are told is going to be in the new budget which the senate has to pass in about a three-month period. so, here they come, higher taxes. martha: yeah. i mean, stuart, as you point out the argument that is being waged now about really tax rerecall follow was something that conservatives offered the first time around as a good way to sort of change the system and bring in more revenue
in this country, you know, chief among them the economy, the budget deficit for crying out loud. a dysfunctional government. in have to go to -- 4%. what in the world is going on in that town? >> not the first time there were talking about things that the rest of the country does not care about as much. interesting. this poll comes out with 71 percent of americans believing these new laws are unlikely to actually prevent future mass shootings, and then there was a washington post-abc poll earlier this week that found 55 percent of americans believe that the most effective way or one of the most effective ways to stop these things is to have armed guards and schools. much more in line with what the nra was proposing. people are skeptical of new laws, and i think they're right to be. if there are going to be new measures undertaken, they want to do things that are not what the white house is proposing right now. lou: there is a dishonesty in this initiative that i find appalling. this president reacted skeptically to the proposal by the nra to put armed guards at schools all over the country. the
the challenges of the deficit and the debt, and also to get a budget. we haven't had had a budget in a long time. i hope he will step up to responsibilities to be a president that is inclusive rather than exclusive and focus on the word, we can do it together. >> eric: this morning, on fox sunday, it's common ground and grand themes, but look -- and compromise. his campaign organizing for america they changed that organizing for action. he will be pushing his policies. how does that square with the theme of common ground? >> i think it's a little inconsistent. president should be listening to people who won election during the last cycle. there were a lot of republicans that won pretty solid elections and now serving. i want to make sure the president is inclusive with the word we, and he has to try to find common ground with them rather than stand with home common ground. >> eric: how about dealing with the debt ceiling and mr. boehner he won't negotiate anymore? >> the president is going to have to reach across the aisle and demonstrate sincerely he will listen and work. he has to show up for
everyone in washington is talking about debt and deficits. he also gave a very rigorous defense of entitlement spending, take a listen. >> the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid security, these things do not sap our initiative. they strengthen us. [ applause ] they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. [ applause ] >> now, interesting as well that the white house put out a tweet about another part of the speech where he said, quote: our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are tweeted like anyone else under the law. what's significant about this it's the first time any u.s. president has used the word gay in an inaugural address. you will remember it was only a few months ago the president came out in favor of same sex marriage. that was a change for him. he now is making clear that gay rights will also be part of his second term agenda, shep. >> shepard: what are we getting in the way of reaction to this speech, ed? >> well, look, republicans are going to be a little bi
deficits, america cannot afford another debate with this congress about whether or not they should pay the bills they've already racked up. >> bill: so the question -- so why should the president entertain this notion that the debt ceiling which republicans voted for 19 times under george w. bush without a peep, you know, why should he entertain the notion that suddenly this is a matter of big negotiations? >> well, he's trying to say that he shouldn't but unfortunately the house republicans have the majority in congress. unfortunately for him, so when he says he doesn't want to debate it and negotiate over it, he is running up against the fact that people who have the power in the house do want to debate it and that can cause problems. he certainly is pushing this idea here to try to remove this from the realm of what he wants and the american people see as rational debate. he used a lot of words yesterday that were very strong to try to make people see this as what he called an absurd way of approaching this. he talked about this being like holding a gun to your head or ransom. this
to overload the agenda but in addition everything he wants to do and obviously the debt and deficit he will have several battles with congress over that but gun control, he will try to take advantage newtown has happened and perhaps caused a tippingpoint in public attitudes and he will push that very aggressively. shepard: senator chuck schumer, the chairman of joint congressional committee of presidential ceremonies with opening remarks. >> welcome to the capitol and this celebration of our great democracy. now this -- [cheers and applause] this is the 57th inauguration of an american president and no matter how many times one witnesses this event, its simplicity, its inate majesty and most of all its meaning, that say yesterday, yet cautious trusting of power from wee we the people to our chosen leader never fails to make our heart beat faster as it will today with the inauguration of president barack h. obama!. [applause] now we know that we would not be here today were it not for those who stand guard around the world to preserve our freedom. to those in our armed forces, we offer
the debt ceiling. this is the question we posed. is reduce the federal deficit a worthy goal? this is interesting you may recall white house press secretary made news by stating that deficit reduction is, quote not a worthy goal onto itself. 77% of voters disagree with them and that includes large majorities of republicans, independents and democrats. what is your take on this? >> again i don't want to be a downer here, the question is what urgency to do they place on that. we had an election two months ago where there were two candidates, one was more focused on cutting the deficit and reducing our long term debt and one didn't think it was a big concern. the one who didn't think it was a big concern won the election. yes, voters seem to say that is an issue they agree with, but when it came to election day two months ago that certainly wasn't one of the top issues they voted on because they voted for the candidate who wasn't embody go it. >> heather: through his actions, as well. that leads to this, how f or if it should be raised? should the debt limit be raised again, 23%
, energy, i'm going to focus on this god awful deficit and debt we have. those seemed to be the three long-term things he was playing for and then newton happened and like every parent, like every american, his heart was broken and he has taken this incredibly politically difficult and divisive issue of gun safety and put it ahead i think of debt and deficit, immigration and energy. he had to respond to what happened and people right now are judging that response. >> there's a blueprint. certainly there's a blueprint and they're working on the blueprint. plans on how they'll pursue gun control and plans on how they'll pursue immigration. massive rollouts in the next few weeks. marco rubio seasoning the house for possible transformative legislation. >> 2016 happened right here right now. >> and she wasn't even the first. >> wasn't even the first. margaret and paul, thank you for joining us to talk ability these fascinating issues. >> and when we return, a sneak peek at tomorrow's parade route and security measures in place around the capitol. security so very tight here. and later, roosevel
with these incredible burdens of debt and deficit unless we reform these important programs. >> small talk over an all american inaugural luncheon of lobster, bison and arm pie showed the two parties are capable of expressing goodwill in hopes of bipartisanship. >> i think there are areas that we have in common and can work toward solutions together. >>> after day of celebration dan pheiffer telling "washington post" republicans may not be up to the task. the cbs news political director said quote go for the throat. why obama must declare war about the republican party. >> especially that coming from a news otherzation. >> we are getting a lot of reaction coming in. folks are criticizing president obama for putting social issues before the economy. the economy some argue is not one of his priorities. >> if you look back in 2008 the median household income 52,546 dollars. three years into president obama's presidency the average for 2011 it dropped more than 2,000 dollars to 50,054. when you look at the numbers do you think the president should be more focused on the economy. john meachum is talking ab
it. gun safety, immigration reform. deficit reduction and those looming spending cuts that are a part of the sequestration. so that's lot before the president. but as major has noted this is a speech today that's not about specifics, but setting the tone and trying in some ways to push the reset button. >> thank you very much. the president and the first family are back at the white house this morning, but they started their day right across the street from the white house at st. john's episcopal church where our wyatt andrews is standing by this morning. >> scott, good morning. every president since franklin roosevelt, that's 80 years, has begun inauguration day here at st. john's church. the president arrived early this morning with the first lady, daughters malia and sasha, and the family of vice president biden. they came to a 50-minute prayer service. attended also by about 600 members of the parish and congregation. they also got some news when they heard that their reverend will be giving the benediction. the previous one had withdrawn after he gave an anti-gay sermon 20 years
was raised in august, the political fight and the spotlight on the count row's deficit and debt problems led s&p to downgrade the u.s. credit rating for the first time in history. >> geithner steered the major economic moves in the first term, now he's stepping down at treasury. the pick to replace him is jack lew, who has established a close relationship with the president. he is know chummy with the republicans on the hill after the debt ceiling negotiation. for that reason and other, his looming confirmation hearing could be bumpy. but if confirmed, lew will likely be dealing with the top issue in this second term, how to get the economy moving and addressing the count re's long-term fiscal problems. >> this is a president that is forced to grapple to the tenor of our times with the budget woes, with the economy that can't get over the hump. it's going to consume most of his time, i believe, in the second term. >> what he cannot do, going into this term is go from economic crisis to economic crisis. that's not leadership. what he will have to do is figure out how we address this in a broa
in the details on immigration reform and gun control and deficit reduction at the state of the union next month when he goes back to capitol hill. >>heather: back in 2009 it was 20 minutes so hopefully he will stick to the same. then you, ed henry. >>gregg: now the inaugural theme called "faith in america's future." that was chosen by the joint congressional committee on inaugural ceremonies commemorting the united states perseverance in unity and marks the 150th year since the placement of the statue of freedom atop the new capitol dome in 1863 when crews worked without any pay at all to complete the project, the official inaugural program, launch and other activists is reflecting that theme. >> interesting insight. as we mentioned, today's official swearing in was not open to the public. why is that? according to a tradition dating back to the 19th century, public inaugurations have to be moved to the following monday if the inauguration day falls on a sunday. this has happen add few times before including in 1985 during the second inauguration of ronald reagan and when eisenhower in 1957 was
important thing he could do is tax reform and deficit control. if he could put those two things together, that'd be bigger than health care. >> steve: you know what? if he were to work with the republicans talking reform-- >> i think that's a lock for next year. >> steve: well, he wants to do something about it. some republicans want to do something about it, remember last time with health care, the republicans had a bunch of ideas and the democrats shut them out completely. maybe this time bipartisan. >> brian: that's not the harry reid i know. >> alisyn: let's get to other stories in the headlines, late last noos night, two drones strikes, at least three of the bodies were burned beyond recognition. the death toll could rise in the hostage crisis at a gas plant in algeria. many were killed including one american. two americans are still missing and the crisis ended yesterday when the algerian army attacked the plant killing two militants. president obama said this is attack is another reminder of the threat posed by al-qaeda and other violent extremist groups in north africa. and the p
as a package. >> the now defunct campaign will try to focus on deficit control and gun control. on the last issue republicans can see democrats in distress. chief among them senate majority leader harry reid. >> i don't think senator harry reid brings it to the senate floor because he has six democrats up in election in two years. >> this and other difficulties appeared miles away as mr. obama recited the constitutional oath that cemented the start of his new term. >> i did it. >> sasha was referring to the mix jum four years ago where the chief justice and the president said some of the words of the oath out of sequence prompting a do-over here at the white house a couple of hours later. as sasha said nobody messed up this time and as said a couple of moments ago, that's probably not too bad. >>> robert gibbs was an adviser to the obama campaign and served as the white house's first press secretary. welcome. >> thank you. >> you have seen it you have read it, characterize it. >> i think it's hopeful, and it talks about the values and the visions and the ideals th
deficit. >> "the suze orman show" airs saturday night at 9:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. but you already knew that. >> we're taking a walk on the wild side with patrick monihan. >> no, kate, don't do it. . good morning, i'm meteorologist crystal egg erwith the weather channel. let's get your forecast through the weekend and for much of next week. one thing you'll notice, no rain, no snow on the map across the southeast. our storm is quickly moving out. winter storm iago coming to an end. that means the sun is returning finally after a lot of gloomy days in th southeast. our focus will shift across the great lakes and the high plains, areas with lake effects snow and much colder air coming into the northern states by the end of the weekend. 43 in chicago today. not too bad. in fact getting up to 54 in atlanta with sunshine. not a terrible friday. could be a lot worse. temperatures are coming back closer to average now. we'll have really warm weather in the southwest. about 75 for you in phoenix, 72 in los angeles. chicago enjoy those temps in the 40s because eventually this cold air makes it i
our debt to g.d.p., our deficit to g.d.p. down around 3%, which is the basis of all economists left, right and center all agree on the areas we can begin to grow as a country. and as my grandfather used to say with grace of god and goodwill of the neighbors, cooler heads will prevail now between now and the time we deal with the debt ceiling and we may meet the goal which we set out to do, which is to have roughly a $4 trillion cut over 10 years in the long-term deficit and to put us on that path. but i didn't come here to talk about any of those important subjects today, because as important as they all are today we have a more urgent and immediate call and that is how to deal with the epidemic of gun violence in america. you all know the statistics better than anyone so i'm not going to repeat them. on that score, i owe an incredible debt of gratitude to you at the head table and those of you in the room. unanimitydon't have in this ballroom nor do we in any ballroom, but we all acknowledge that we have to do something. we have to act. and i hope we all agree, there is a need to r
and deficit. >> that is absolutely true, these will be two big issues. on the gun-control issue, but no one is talking about taking everyone's guns away. they are talking about sensible, common-sense measures to prevent some of the tragic incidents we have seen recently, in newtown, aurora, colorado. i think there will be time to get into the thick of these issues after tomorrow, but tomorrow will be a chance for the president, really, to bring the country together and say we need to reach common ground on some of the major problem we face. >> you were inside the bush white house. the president put on the table two big domestic agenda items, immigration reform, primarily because his own party said no, and social security reform. >>what advice would you give president obama, based on the lessons that you saw firsthand with president bush? >> the advice i would give to him is you cannot go wrong by doing what you promised you would do, by pressing the agenda and you promised the voters you promised you would press, and you have to be willing to face the consequences. when president bush was r
, deficits, gun control, immigration. a lot to do and not a great environment to get it done. but with us now, two men who may not have to worry too much about that, but who may give us great insights if possible to get great things done. barney frank, the former democratic congressman from massachusetts and steve latourette, republican from ohio. first to you, congressman, as the democrat, what does the president have to do differently in the second term to have a more cooperative, working environment. to you, sir, what does the republican party need to do to try to get some things done? >> i have to differ with the preface, john. >> i thought you might. >> barack obama -- look, this notion that partisanship has taken over. it began when barack obama became president. i was chairman of the financial service committee of 2007 in the bush administration and i worked very closely with hank paulson, secretary of the treasury. we worked on putting fannie mae and freddie mac to stop the lawsuits. george bush went to harry reid and nancy pelosi in december of 2007. he said the economy is slipping,
. the biggest problem in washington is there is a trust deficit. republicans blame the president, the president and the democrats blame republicans for that. he's the singular leader of the country. we can all debate that. he needs to find a way to break it and start a second term. >> he joked because his drawers teenagers and want to spend less time with him and he may have more time to hang out with members of congress and back slap. has that been an issue? >> i don't see him spending a lot more time with members of congress. i think he brushed that aside when asked about it in a recent press conference. i think and you just had time with him, with the historians, but what i see in him is a man more confident, he's tougher, i think he's smarter politically, i think he's bolder. i'm not sure he's wiser in terms of how do you get things done in this city. that's where we'll have to let that play out. i think he may have a -- portrait of him in "the new york times" saying he's not only scarred but he has a smaller sense of what can be accomplished. he has diminished expectations of how hard it i

of the debt ceiling, but because they want a credible deficit reduction plan, and the president doesn't seem to be interested in actually coming up with a credible way to deal with the amount of spending we are doing in this country. bill: if that is the says, doyoo many me, do you think it can get through the senate. >> i imagine harry reid under the direction of the president will try to block these things. i'm going to continue to cosponsor senator haopl me's plan. we have a spending problem in this country. they know it in wyoming, families have to balance their budget every year. many states do. we do in wyoming. it's time for this senate and the house and the president to get serious about limiting our spending and specifically the wasteful spending that continues. in the last hour stewart varney and martha talked about some of the abuses that continue to go on. people know that their tax dollars are being wasted. we need to get the spending under control. bill: two days ago brit hume told us this will be bloody, this battle. will it? >> the future of our country is at stake here and t
